Flagellin, the major structural subunit of bacterial flagella, potently induces inflammatory responses in mammalian cells by activating Toll-like receptor (TLR) 5. Like other TLRs, TLR5 recruits signalling molecules to its intracellular TIR domain, leading to inflammatory responses. Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) has been reported to play a role in(More)
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) causes diarrhea in diverse populations worldwide. The AraC-like regulator AggR is a key virulence regulator in EAEC. AggR-regulated genes include those encoding the Aggregative Adherence Fimbria, the dispersin protein, and a type VI secretion system. This study characterizes the regulation of the aggR promoter(More)
